Happy New Year!

How glorious was it to wake up on the 1st of January to a cold crisp day, well that was the certainly the outlook in Sussex. I sometimes find it a little challenging in the lead up to the New Year, the anticipation of everything to come, but now that 2019 is here I am so excited to be getting back into work and opening the school up to all the different seasonal flowers that will be coming to the flower markets soon.


I am certainly one of those cliques and I always set myself targets and goals for the New Year. This year we are looking to expand the courses that we offer at the school. We will be offering two Foundation Courses in September for beginners. A day course and and an evening course. So if you have been wondering about floristry courses and thinking it’s time to give floristry a go, why not come to our free open evening in March where I will give a talk about the floristry classes and courses that we will be running for beginners. For more information about our open evening click here.


As the warmer months arrive we will be offering lots of seasonal courses, including our Celebration of Spring and Celebration of Summer workshops. These delightful floristry one day classes teach students about conditioning and working with seasonal blooms. For our spring class students will get to make a spring floral wreath and a table urn. Our Celebration of Summer workshop focuses on going foam free. We will show you how to create environmentally friendly floral displays and you will get to make your own table urn using a floral frog pin.

New to 2019 is also our two day Wedding Retreat course. This course has been designed for anyone who has had some experience working with flowers. If you are unsure if you are suitable contact us here. These will be high intensity creative days where students will create the following displays: bridal bouquet, garland, aisle flowers, archway and hanging display. Students will come away feeling confident and ready to take on big events for themselves.
